Best view in Osoyoos! And incredible lunch. You must try the meat and cheese plate! And wine tasting is lovely. About an 8 minute drive from down town Osoyoos. Lovely for an afternoon!

A great walk through Canada’s only true desert. It was 32 degrees and dry. There were many displays and artifacts. We were warned to watch for rattlesnakes but saw none. We did, however, see many types of cacti, and an osprey nest!

Very enjoyable, interesting and informative. Lovely grounds and hotel plus the winery. Beautiful sculptures throughout the property. Except for the warning about rattlesnakes which made me a little hesitant it is worth the time to visit.

Our website says we are open Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays only from 10am until 4pm. This should change in April but until then these are our current hours. Thank you.
